( bass & vocals )
Michael was born in New Westminster and started playing guitar at age six. He studied trumpet, sax and voice in the school band and after university joined a traveling rock band as a lead guitarist. In his mid twenties he accepted a position on a cruise ship as a bass player and for the next 25 years he woke up every day in a different exotic locale.
It was during this period that he started working on his cabaret show “Diamond Jones” and his trip down the Vegas Strip, a tribute to Tom Jones and Neil Diamond that still can be seen at theatres today.
